Skratch Bastid

Paul Murphy, known primarily by his stage name Skratch Bastid, is a Canadian DJ and Juno nominated record producer. Three-time Scribble Jam DJ Battle winner, he was described as ‘a DJ with more than mixing up his sleeves’ by URB magazine. His rise to prominence began with his 2003 Scribble Jam win, and his world class status was solidified with subsequent victories in 2004 and 2007. He released Taking Care of Business, a collaborative album with Pip Skid and John Smith, on his own label First Things First Records in 2005, and was the first-ever Canadian DJ to be nominated for the Juno Award for Producer of the Year in 2008 for his work on Buck 65’s album Situation. He was nominated for the Juno Award for Instrumental Album of the Year in 2016 for his project Spin Cycle with the Afiara String Quartet. Since 2000, he has hosted daytime block-party style events in various cities called Bastid’s BBQ. Past headliners include DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Premier, Just Blaze, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Z-Trip, k-os and Grandtheft.
